20th Century Fox has released the final War for the Planet of the Apes trailer online. Director Matt Reeves returns for the follow-up, which picks up a few years after the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, where an all-out war between the humans and the apes is underway. Caesar, played by Andy Serkis, sets out to exact revenge against The Colonel, played by Woody Harrelson, who has amassed a massive human army at a compound deep in the snow.
Writer/director Joss Whedon’s Batgirl could be the next DC female superhero movie to hit theaters following director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman; this according to Deborah Snyder, co-founder of Cruel and Unusual Films and the producer of the DCEU movies. In a series of tweets from people in attendance at the Wonder Woman Chinese Premiere red carpet event, Deborah Snyder said Whedon’s Batgirl will reach theaters before a potential Wonder Woman sequel.
According to Deadline, Blake Lively has signed on to star in Bruised, a mixed martial arts action-drama directed by The Notebook and My Sister’s Keeper helmer Nick Cassavetes. Lively will play Jackie, a single mother working two jobs and a disgraced MMA fighter who has been up against the ropes her entire life. When the authorities threaten to take her young son away from her, she must get back in the cage for one last chance to fight for redemption and give her son the life she always wanted.

The big push for Wonder Woman is just beginning, but now it seems Warner Bros is already developing a follow up to their first female-led superhero film. In a report via Slash Film, Arthur Wong was in attendance at the Shanghai press event for Wonder Woman when Zack Snyder revealed on the red carpet for the event that WB and DC Films are already planning a sequel.
THR is reporting that The Crown star Claire Foy is Sony’s top choice to play hacker Lisbeth Salander in its adaptation of The Girl in the Spider's Web; a relaunch of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo franchise that has Don’t Breath helmer Fede Alvarez attached to direct. The studio has been on the hunt for a new actress to take on the role, with sources for THR saying the finalists came down to Foy and Felicity Jones.
Universal Pictures has unveiled a new behind-the-scenes featurette for The Mummy, and it gives us a better look at Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll character while also revealing his other, more sinister side with Mr. Hyde.
